Lunch Time



I don’t care which side of the public breast feeding fence you are on I think we can all agree that when the kid is old enough to stop halfway through his feeding and light up a cigar it’s probably time to stop. Oh and just in case there is any confusion, I’m on the side of the fence where I don’t see your kids sucking on your titty while I pick up condoms at Walmart. Too ironic for me.

    Get the hell over it. I’d rather see a woman nursing than poppin’ a bottle of (likely recalled) formula in a babies mouth. At least you KNOW what’s in the breastmilk. This is the problem with America.

    First of all, babies need to be on either breast milk or formula until they are 1 year old. This child does not appear to be older than 1. Second, if you are bothered by seeing a child do what is natural then that is more your problem than the mother’s. Sorry that you are so offended by nudity. News flash people…boobs are actually made for breast feeding babies!! This isn’t an issue in other countries why is it an issue here?

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with breastfeeding. Heaven forbid she go on about her day, which includes choosing a healthy and completely natural way of feeding her child. Why should she stop running her errands. Nobody says anything about parents who leave their infants in a stroller with a bottle in their mouth proped up with blankets. Sadly those parents don’t see how unsafe that is.

    I say good for her and boo you POW on this one.

    I’m no expert in children, but I don’t think that kid is as old as he looks…us white folks seem to have kids that are bald until they’re 2…this kid is clearly Mexican and I’ve never seen a bald Mexican baby before, they usually come out with a full head of hair. Also, breastfeeding is a good form of birth control…but yeah, IDK why you just can’t throw a blanket over your kid while this is happening…

    I know this woman. And breastfeeding should be allowed anywhere! It’s feeding a child, whether or not they are babies or toddlers. And really, you have a hard time seeing a mother feed her child from her boob, but no problem seeing some “hot” girl walking around with her breasts popping out of her shirt, belly showing, and a skirt that barely covers her ass? This is part of what’s wrong with America…..our morals are off. Way off.

    Sure, it’s perfectly natural to breastfeed your child when they’re hungry. However, I do not want to see that things half-tit hanging out of that poor childs mouth. Why on earth wouldn’t you want to do this in privacy? Or, if this isn’t the most important thing going on right now and you have to be shopping around Wal-Mart, a light towel will work. Just cover up the flab and boob skin.

    That child’s young enough to still be breastfeeding. You don’t know what you’re talking about.
    Up to age 5 is not unreasonable to continue, actually, as that is how long “wild” humans in hunter-gatherer tribes continue. Furthermore, if this family has nutritional deficiencies in their budget, this may be the best way for a toddler to get the nutrition he needs to outgrow his poverty. I don’t like seeing women’s breasts in public either but on the list of things I’m forced to witness it falls pretty low. Why attack breastfeeding mom’s while we ignore bullying kids, rage drivers, abusive families, litter, filth, addiction, and so much more that passes before our eyes daily? You CAN get used to the sight if you just quit caring.

    To all you pro-breast feeders-get over yourselves. You’re so concerned with your own rights and comforts that you forget the rest of society may NOT be enamored with seeing you have a “bonding” moment in line at the check out or wherever else you choose to whip it out. I breast fed both my kids, and yes I had to do it on public several times, but because it was a personal experience i tried to keep it that way and be as discreet as possible. I say if you feel you deserve the right to do it wherever you want, then wear your big girl panties and accept the fact that those around you don’t find your engorged and saggy tits attractive in any or fashion and fail to see the “natural beauty”.

    Newsweek or TIME magazine ran a COVER picture of a THREE year old boy, latched to his mother’s breast while he stood on a step ladder.
    Apparently for some women, they aren’t too clued into the fact that once teeth sprout, breast feeding isn’t necessary anymore.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah…EVERYONE gets that breast feeding is natural and NECESSARY.
    What ISN’T is not having the good manners to do so in public without discretion and having your child get used to discreet means of feeding them when they need it.
    And there’s also the option of EXPRESSING that milk into glass bottles and STILL having the benefits of mother’s milk without such public exposure of your mammary glands.
    I mean seriously, only ANIMALS do it without any concern for privacy and discretion.
    And we react this way because people with manners have a choice, and animals don’t.

    Infants should be breastfed until at least 1 year of age and I breastfed mine until he was almost 3.

    Do any of you want to eat your meals with a towel over your head or in a filthy restroom? Would you rather hear the kid scream until the mom was done shopping, since leaving to feed without paying for her stuff is against the law? This mother is doing the absolutely BEST thing for her child and there’s nothing wrong with it. Some kids refuse bottles (mine does) and I can’t think of ANYONE who would want to eat in a filthy ass walmart bathroom, or eat with a hot towel over their heads. Get over yourselves and either look away or leave.

    Get over it, there is no shame to be found in feeding your child. Both of my boys nursed until they were 3. Just because “titties” can be used in a sexual way doesn’t mean that’s all they are for and should be hidden away when used for their intended purposes. I haven’t met a single person who hasn’t used their mouth in a sexual way, but it doesn’t keep them from opening it in public, or wearing gloves on your hands which are even more guilty of being used sexually.

    I Have no problem with breast feeding. I have a huge problem when the mother cannot stop doing what she is doing to properly tend to her child by finding a bench to sit down on and treat the baby as her priority…not shopping and using the kid as the accessory. like everything else there is a time and place. a kid being bounced around while mom shops and is trying to eat can’t be good for the baby digestive system either. i get it. I nursed all my kids….but while in public i would sit down to tend to them correctly. they didn’t ask to be born but unless you treat yourself that way you should not treat your baby with such absent disregard. give the kid the 10 minutes he needs!!

    Yeah, and it’s perfectly natural for a guy to stop in the park or at an outdoor event and walk over and pee on a tree. Guys have been peeing on trees as long as women have been breast feeding. But nobody wants to see us do that in public, I’m sure you’ll all agree; and I wouldn’t want to, anyway.

    They do make really nice fashionable nursing tops and some nice accessory shawls that do a great job and are very comfortable for the mom, the baby, and the public around them.

    I’m all for public breastfeeding and for helping women to fee comfortable to breastfeed in public, but even this is a little extreme for me. When I’m breastfeeding someday (I’m a girl), I hope strangers will respect my right to discretely breastfeed in public but I’ll also respect those strangers’ right to not want to see me breastfeed. I know its natural and all that kind of stuff, but so is taking a crap. I don’t want to see someone taking a crap in public. Maybe I’m hating on my own gender, but I think there has to be mutual respect in these cases.

    And I repeat: there are breast pumps and there are bottles to put mother’s milk in. I was a professional nanny and that’s what mothers would leave for me to feed their infants sometimes.
    That is of course, mothers who are not like animals and understand keeping something this important PRIVATE and discreet.
    So don’t go into the bathroom, stores have DRESSING rooms too. There are all kinds of alternatives to breastfeeding your baby like animals do.
    We wear clothes, we have opposing thumbs, and we have other means of having the benefits of breast milk without exposing yourself and your baby in this way.
    Seriously NOBODY is arguing that breast milk isn’t a good thing or that a baby doesn’t need to be fed when they have to be.
    We ARE saying that there are BETTER, SAFER more civilized ways of doing it than the way animals do it.

This is the same as those morons who won’t pull their pants up and show me their goodies too.
    GET OVER YOURSELF ladies and if you just HAVE to go to Wal-Mart during a SCHEDULED feeding time, then shame on you. Maybe be a little responsible and actually have a family schedule and be prepared in life. If you can’t achieve even that, then please put down the darn hair accessories and use a blanket or nursing shirt instead of disrespecting me and raping my eyes with your gut.

    RD, when I tried to pump and put the milk in bottles, my daughter got nipple confused because a bottle nipple is nothing like a real one. It resulted in it being very difficult to get her to latch on to either method, and for a few days it was hard to get her to eat as much as she needed.

    Katk, I don’t care how many books you have read, there is no such thing as a feeding schedule. My son spent 24 hours in the hospital when he was a couple of weeks old, and they tried to force a schedule on him. He screamed, constantly. He was hungry and they refused to bring him food. By the way, he was unable to have breast milk due to a lactose intolerance. So please no one tell me he shouldn’t have been on the bottle. Babies are hungry when they are hungry, and there’s no schedule to it.

    That being said, when I had to breast feed around other people, I did put a burping cloth over my boob and my baby. Not a “bath towel” as someone said earlier.. not something too hot.. a light cloth is all it took.

    I hate seeing this. I breastfed my 4 children, but if I was out in public I would sit down on a bench somewhere and discreetly feed my baby, not let my boob stick halfway out. Also, if my belly looked like that, there’s no way in hell I’d walk around with my shirt up. There’s a fine line between being comfortable with yourself, and having no modesty whatsoever.

    Apart from the fact that it looks slightly uncomfortable, I don’t have a problem with breastfeeding in public – but there are ways to do it in a less obvious way, so as not to “offend” people who think it is “disgusting, pig-like” behaviour. Wouldn’t want that!
    Also I have to add, that the time span of breast-feeding a child varies tremendously in different cultures, so who are you to judge? In Mongolia some 6-year-olds still drink breast-milk, which is probably hard to understand for most western people, but that doesn’t make it abnormal. For them, it is the norm. Some people just can’t tolerate anything that differs from their own little world. Sad world we live in if something like this will offend people.

    @RD: Wow, so it’s better and safer to put a plastic nipple into my child’s mouth? Seriously? Even if it were so, most children who are breast-fed won’t accept the bottle from their mother, because they know there is a boob available. Obviously if mother is not there, they’re more likely to accept the bottle. But seriously, how narrow-minded can one be?

  73. Already educated

    As an immunological scientist I am a huge advocate of breastfeeding… In fact the problem here isn’t the breastfeeding at all. Why is this woman doing it in a walmart? Running errands is one thing, but if you can find the time and energy to decide on breastfeeding than be aware that it will take time out of your day. That’s part of being a mother. Find a secluded bench or one in the middle of the store but at least use a blanket. The bacteria alone that the child is being exposed to while ingesting the mothers breast milk is cause for alarm.

    So please don’t use “educate yourself” as a reason to dislike the picture. If we’re being politically correct this woman should be arrested for public indecency. Breastfeed for the benefit of your child but don’t make a show out of it.

    @Katellan: yes, I know…not all children can respond to breast feeding or the bottle in the same way or the same time. I already said that no one is arguing that a child needs to be fed when they need it.

    There are some mothers that no amount of experience in childbearing or advice from other good parents, is going to make THEM good mothers.
    So don’t take any cheap shots yourself about reading books. Few people are born being good mothers. THAT still takes some training and committed effort in understanding of their individual babies and their health situations.

    ALL I was talking about was a clean, DISCREET way to feed your child when necessary.
    That doesn’t have a thing to do with the timing of the feeding or whether it’s breast milk whatsoever.
    Let’s get real.
    This is about some women who don’t have the creativity or manners in which to handle their business without exposing themselves and their children like animals.

    @TINA: I didn’t SAY the bottle was BETTER. Pay attention.

    If you’re using a bottle, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. I ALREADY SAID, I know and understand the need to breastfeed when the child is hungry.
    I applaud breast milk, and it’s benefit.
    ALL I’m criticizing, is EXPOSING yourself and your baby UNNECESSARILY.
    And it IS unnecessary to breast feed indiscreetly with no sense of privacy or discretion.
    I never suggested a bathroom, by the way.
    But I do know that women who have BEEN discreet from the beginning with a light covering, the baby DOES get used to it and doesn’t fight it every time.
    If they are big enough to fight it, perhaps they are too old to breast feed anyway.
    Don’t get huffy over something I didn’t say or suggest.

    I know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. The need to breast feed yes.
    Doing it like an animal. No.

    It’s because men think that breasts are just for them. Breasts are for babies, not for male amusement. Making breasts a “taboo” (unless it’s a slutty 18 year old girl) is just another way to oppress women and make them feel ashamed.

    Here’s an idea, we’ll hide breastfeeding if you guys will cover your ugly bald heads and fat nasty beer bellies. Fair enough?

    The fact of the matter is this child looks to me to be not much over a year. Most states have laws stating it is perfectly fine for a woman to breastfeed where ever she is. Why would she pump and put her milk in a bottle? To make people like you all more comfortable?? What about her and her child? Would you rather listen to a screaming baby? Shame on who ever took this photo and posted it. There is nothing wrong with a mother taking care of her child. If you don’t want to see a woman’s breasts then don’t look! It is none of your business. Further more to equate nurturing a child to pooping and peeing and having sex is just sick. You people have serious issues. Boobs are for feeding babies. It is sad that you would HAVE to explain that to a child. It is not taboo…The more woman that do it in public the more it will become the norm :)

    I’m all for breastfeeding, even in public. When a baby is hungry you feed it. This isn’t a baby. This kid looks like he’s at least 2 possibly 3 years old. He doesn’t need to be on the breast anymore than he needs to be on a bottle or a pacifier at that age. He’s also more than old enough to wait a few minutes for his food.
    There are plenty of ways to discretely and publicly breast feed your child. This woman obviously doesn’t have the brains to do that.

No one is asking your to “suffocate” your kid under a blanket or force you to go to a smelly bathroom so stop being drama queens it really doesn’t make you seem like a better mother just because you bitch and moan about rights..All that is asked is to please turn your back or not let as much hang out because truth is maybe God made boobs for feeding but no one sees they like that anymore not even you before you started feeding so please shut up and learn that if you want to make everyone shut up about you feeding when out and about then don’t give them anything to say anything about.. Not that damn hard.. At least when i would breastfeed i know not everyone wanted to see my stretch mark saggy leaking boobs and the only ones who did were perverted old men who i once saw one looking and he saw that i saw him and he licked his lips.. yeahhh that does happen more then you think you just don’t always see them looking at you.. So really Stop trying to prove that your top mum and Buy a pump i don’t want to hear “my baby doesn’t like bottles” shut up its just something they get use to . rant done :)

    She needs to cover up! It is disgusting! I’m a woman and I don’t like showing my tits off and I sure as hell don’t want to see another woman’s pair either! I don’t care if they are “pretty” and “young” or if they are saggy, it is freaking gross! Modesty is something that should always be practiced!

    Also I have worked at a daycare for 3 years and I know moms who did breast feed. But they would bring bottles of breast milk in for their child. So it isn’t impossible to get a baby use to a bottle!

    Also this lady is in the freaking hair accessory aisle! There are plenty of children that go around that area! A mother should not have to explain what the other woman is doing! It doesn’t matter if it is natural or not! If you want to breastfeed in public, put a baby blanket over you! Also please wear a shirt that you can “pull down” to expose your breast so that everyone around you doesn’t have to see your belly.

    Also do all the idiots point out the person in the background, that lady is fully dressed! She just has those weird colored jeans! My friend would wear jeans like that all the time!

I don’t want to see anyones boobs while I am shopping, I don’t want my children to see them either, have some friggen respect for others around you!!! They make these amazing nursing tanks, bras, and tops where you don’t have to hike up your entire shirt. And God forbid she shows some decency and use a nursing cover or blanket.

    I nursed, my boobs are for my husbands eyes only. I wouldn’t expose other women’s husbands, boyfriends and young adolescent men to my boobs. Especially other peoples young children, it’s just plain rude and I am glad I live in America and not some poor 3rd world country. GROW UP and COVER UP…you aren’t the only person in the room..have some RESPECT for others!!!!

    No one is asking you to “like” seeing breasteeding. You don’t have to look or take a tasteless photo. You can choose to aim your gaze elsewhere. However, when you compare it to urine or feces, you’re implying that those are food. Now if you want to eat your own poop, that’s your business but I wouldn’t recommend it.

    People who suggest pumping as the alternative cannot possibly possess any understanding of the logistics milk production. Short story: you have to pump every time your baby eats and it may take 2-3 pumping sessions to get an entire feedings. Women were built to nurse babies, not to make milk for a vacuum.

    What you all are saying is that this mother is supposed to plan days, maybe weeks in advance for every errand to make sure she has enough for that one feeding while she’s out and still has to make sure she can carve out a solid half hour fairly soon after the baby eats to pump in place of the missed feedings. Why in the world should a woman have to go through that when she can easily nurse directly and save her a ton of trouble? Not to mention that you are inviting potential contamination by putting the milk in external containers vs by nursing directly – which is very clean for both parties.

    Covering up is a personal choice for that mom. It’s not your to make. A kid that’s more than a few months old may not even tolerate having a blanket over its head anyway.

    Really if this offends you, please by all means make sure you give hell to the next women you see shoving a bottle in her kid’s mouth while she shops. There’s no reason to claim that practice is ok if you’re going to say this one isn’t.

    There’s nothing to “explain” to children. You tell them that mom is feeding her baby. What else is there to say?

    I do not know of any other country besides the USA where public nursing is considered so unacceptable. We are so backwards on this issue.

    First of all that baby is not even a year old so you are way off on it needing to be fed…also the WHO and the CDC both recommend breastfeeding until 2 YEARS OLD! This is a completely natural thing…it annoys the hell out of me that you are going to slam someone for breast feeding and love the photos of half naked thin girl with there BOTTOM BISCUITS and BOOBS! The only thing that you could have said about this photo that wouldnt have been wrong POW is that she lifted her shirt all the way up and doesnt have a second shirt underneath!! FAIL POW

    Well I think this woman feeding her child is a totally natural thing and anyone that has a problem with this has some serious issues. I’ve seen a few comments on here about using discretion when breast feeding and I looked back at the photo and I really don’t see how this lady could have been more discreet without covering the child’s head with a blanket she obviously didn’t have. Her arm is up, cradling her child, no more of her abdomen is exposed than that of other women who make the choice to expose themselves for fashion’s sake. and just a very small area of breast tissue (on the side) is exposed and no nipple at all. If this sight is so disgusting and disturbing to some of you, don’t look. She is within her right as a mother and human being to care for her child in her way, not yours. Get over your tightass selves and get a life, seriously. This picture should have never made it on to this site because the people who usually end up here are completely clueless about how to present themselves or just don’t care or do it just to get on this site. This is a mother and child and a sacred thing, so fuck off.

    This child is an infant, well under one year of age….with a full head of hair that a Native South American child would have. Someone must have been on the hunt for a photo of a breast feeding mom and infant. The amount of skin this woman is showing is nothing strange or disgusting.
    What is disgusting is people who expose muffin tops, bottom biscuits, ass cracks, shat pants, too little clothing in general, because the people are not in possession of a mirror or are in complete denial of how they actually look….at any age. Still it is addicting to view on this site.
    You can see this woman dresses modestly and only lifts her shirt enough to feed her baby. Continuing to shop is less likely to draw attention, than sitting and covering yourself with a blanket/hooter hider.
    Someone likely followed this woman to get this photo before the baby was finished nursing. It only takes 5 minutes per side, if that.
    Lucky baby to be fed when hungry. We can’t see it, but it’s possible this infant is being supported by more than one arm….note the dark fabric (sling) hanging in front of the woman and below the baby. And if not, this baby is 5 to 6 months old at most….that size could be supported with one arm.

    This is the first time I’ve ever read through all the comments on a photo.

    I’d have to agree, the child is young enough to be breastfed (not that it’s really up to anyone except the mother to decide). And I was one of those mothers whose situation was almost ruined by bottles – did NOT work for us.

    I don’t even think she’s being hugely indiscreet. I must say though, that I wouldn’t have been comfortable doing this. For me personally, I preferred no one ever know what I was doing. While I was learning the ropes myself, I stayed at home or went in a private room to breastfeed. I tried it in front of a mirror so I could see what others could see. I wore a t-shirt with a slit cut in it under my outer shirt, and raised only the outer shirt and only high enough to latch on the baby (that works great for privacy, by the way). In no time at all, anytime I ever breastfed in public, everyone thought I just had a sleeping baby in my arms.

    I still remember attending a nursing mom’s outing when I was a very new mother. It was my first time meeting the other moms, and one very well-endowed lady sat down in the center of the mall food court, lifted her shirt all the way to her shoulder, and popped the whole thing out with no cover at all. I guess she was comfortable with that, but to be honest, it embarrassed me. That may have been my reason for wanting to be discreet, so I suppose I’m glad to have seen it!

    I don’t think the mother is doing a terrible thing. Just not something I’d be comfortable with. Once I became a real pro, I could have walked around with baby in arms or a sling and done other things while breastfeeding and no one would have known. It is possible.

    This is normal. There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby and going about your daily chores. People from all over the world and from every period of history would see this as an every day thing. I see it as an every day thing. It’s only in our artificial American culture that this seems remarkable. Get over it. God made boobs for food and fun. Our society has no problem with showing off boobs for recreational purposes. We should have even less problem showing off a little boob for nutritional puposes. This picture displays the practical side of breasts, which seems strange to our Western eyes. In the big picture, what is really strange, is our collective reaction to such an unremarkable act.

  100. Breast feeding Mom

    I’m sure this hasn’t been the first time you have received complaints about posting pictures of nursing mothers on your site. This website is made to shame and embarrass people. Posting pictures of poorly dressed teens and bad haircuts should not be in the same category as a mother feeding her child. Would you post pictures of a mother bottle feeding her infant? I have yet to see one. Most woman don’t enjoy nursing in public; it takes a lot of courage. Sadly, there are many ignorant people when it comes to nursing your child. People so ignorant, they look at a mother feeding her baby and think of it being sexual or indecent exposure. As a nursing mom, I have received the looks, the comments. This site is encouraging harassment and disgust of a woman nourishing her child! A woman has every right to feed her child in Walmart, Target, or any other public place. What would you like us to do? Not feed our babies in public because it makes you uncomfortable? How about throw a blanket over the babies head? Would you like to eat with a blanket over your head?
    How about you educate yourself on the benefits of breast feeding. Your ignorance is intolerable and I am sick to my stomach thinking about these poor mothers who are being shamed simply for feeding their hungry babies.
